A Rocklin man has died of injuries suffered during a crash on Interstate 5 near Elk Grove.

Emilio Garcia, 32, was southbound on I-5 north of Lambert Road at about 6 a.m. Wednesday when he made a lane change that caused his pickup to hit the right front end of a big rig. The collision caused Garcia to lose control of his vehicle.

The pickup crossed into the freeway median and rolled several times before coming to rest in the northbound lanes. Garcia suffered serious injuries and was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
